Your body is one amazing machine. Not only does it automatically take care of all your breathing, circulation, digestion, and other vital processes without you even lifting a finger, but it has the phenomenal ability to bounce back and heal itself when faced with certain amounts of stress.
Most of the time, at least.
There may come a time in your life when your body has simply had enough. Perhaps you’ve been subjected to a constant barrage of ongoing stress, experienced a particularly sudden and intensely stressful situation, or have come to accept negative beliefs and thoughts that are bogging down your entire being. In such cases, the body’s self-regulating mechanisms can no longer do their jobs, resulting in a decline in the health of your body, mind, and soul.
You may become irritated or angry and prone to outbursts; suffer from headaches, stomach aches, muscle tension, and pain; feel anxious, restless, and depressed; or even start overeating, under-eating, or reaching for alcohol or drugs for relief.
Reach instead for Reiki healing and you’ll be much better off (trust us!).
How does Reiki Healing work?
Our short answer to “How does Reiki work?” is “beautifully.”
The longer answer requires a bit of explanation. The spiritual healing art of Reiki works by channeling positive energy into your body, with Reiki masters and practitioners typically placing their hands on the affected areas of the body that need a boost, offering this energy and your body takes in the energy where most needed.
This powerful flow of positive energy may bring a near-immediate sensation of relief as it releases tension, lessens the impact of stress, and replaces negative energy with positive. Some refer to this positive Reiki energy as the life force, and indeed it can bring new life to a stressed-out, tired body.
How does Reiki work on stress symptoms?
Instead of headaches and angry outbursts, Reiki may potentially help you enjoy:
- A boost to your body’s healing mechanisms, which once again begin to function effectively
- Potentially reduced blood pressure, heart rate, and stress hormones from the relaxation response
- Increased immune system strength
- Shifting from the stress response of “fight or flight” to the relaxation response
- Restoration of balance to your body, mind, and soul
Reiki energies have a high and healthy frequency and potency. Reiki masters and practitioners must undergo an attunement process in order to effectively channel the Reiki energies. You can use Reiki on its own for enhanced wellness or in conjunction with traditional medicine anytime your body, mind, and soul needs a powerful, beautiful boost.
